How should zakaah be paid on investment accounts that contain both donated money and private funds?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Islamic centers in the west often have investments (halal), mainly profits from joint partnerships and other non-share investments. Is zakah due on the profits of these investments and any other donations to the Islamic Center?
Jazak Allah.

This question was answered for us by Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Qa’ood as follows:

The shareholders must pay zakaah on their own behalf, but no zakaah is due on the profits stemming from donations.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
